When it comes to regional flair, the poblano chile is ideal for smoky moles, or roasted and cut into strips for garnish, or used to stir up special sauces for holiday meals. The thick-walled poblano is the best chile for roasting and stuffing because the temperature of these delicious peppers ranges from medium to hot — teasing but not torturing the palate.
Ingredient Option: Make your own creamed corn instead of using canned.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Combine cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Place beaten eggs, canola oil and creamed corn into well. Using a whisk, combine ingredients. Add pumpkin and ricotta cheese, and mix until well blended. Stir in red onion, poblano chilies, ginger and garlic. Oil a 13x9-inch glass baking dish with canola oil. Pour batter into the dish and spread it evenly. Bake until the mixture is set, but still soft, about 45 minutes.
